Hi All,

I willl be present again using EME via the CAMRAS system.
I have participated two previous times, during the testing phase and as
pilot during JOTA, and that was very successful.

Many satellite stations are already well equipped to work EME using the
CAMRAS "big ears", but I am using a slight overkill system to ensure

Satellite wise I will focus on FUNcube, since I can explain the design and
present about the FUNcube project to the troop.
Thanks Jim for uploading the fitter message.

See you all on HF, VHF/UHF, sats, ATV, EME and on YouTube!
